NAME ^

Bio::Search::HSP::HSPI - Interface for a High Scoring Pair in a similarity search result

SYNOPSIS ^

    # Bio::Search::HSP::HSPI objects cannot be instantiated since this
    # module defines a pure interface.

    # Given an object that implements the Bio::Search::HSP::HSPI  interface,
    # you can do the following things with it:

    $r_type = $hsp->algorithm;

    $pvalue = $hsp->pvalue();

    $evalue = $hsp->evalue();

    $frac_id = $hsp->frac_identical( ['query'|'hit'|'total'] );

    $frac_cons = $hsp->frac_conserved( ['query'|'hit'|'total'] );

    $gaps = $hsp->gaps( ['query'|'hit'|'total'] );

    $qseq = $hsp->query_string;

    $hseq = $hsp->hit_string;

    $homology_string = $hsp->homology_string;

    $len = $hsp->length( ['query'|'hit'|'total'] );

    $rank = $hsp->rank;

DESCRIPTION ^

Bio::Search::HSP::HSPI objects cannot be instantiated since this module defines a pure interface.

Given an object that implements the Bio::Search::HSP::HSPI interface, you can do the following things with it:

SEE ALSO ^

Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
